    Life Cycle of a Product

    This is the peak time for profit to be made, because as the demand increases, the production increases which therefore leads to lower cost per unit. Advertising campaigns are usually introduced around this time, attracting new and/or wider target markets. Every company wants this stage of a product's life as long as possible. In the example of a book, this is the stage where news has spread about the novel, and copies are beginning to sell at an increasingly fast pace.

  2. Design Evaluation

    So instead of thinking of company names I used branding through a logo. So I created a variety of picture and text logos and I chose the best out of those which is the image below. Then there came the actual packaging and for this creation task I made several scaled and to scale prototype models to note and record all the advantages and disadvantages of the product and how to improve on those. Problems I encountered in this project: When designing my original model I had the idea of having my top and bottom connected by a single hinge at the bottom of the pack then having a hand slot at the top.

  5. Which character does the reader have more sympathy for: Frankenstein or his creation?

    Due to these reasons I feel more sympathy towards the monster than I do towards Victor Frankenstein. Despite how sympathetic I feel, I do like Frankenstein more than his creation. My main reason for this is that the monster, perhaps through little fault of its own, is a murderer. This shows that the monster has bad intentions whilst Frankenstein does not. This is but one example of just how open 'Frankenstein' is. Shelley leaves it up to the reader to make his/her own decisions on the book. Due to this I think Frankenstein is a fantastic book and rightly deserves to be as highly acclaimed as it is today.

  7. Evaluation - produce proposals for the possible re-branding of my school

    He incorporates them very well and subtlety. I like his work because it's very classic, memorable and simple. His work is landmark. I did this because it gave me inspiration, an influence and it offered a look at how previous designers worked. I did web searches on the images connected to different faculties and just asked people what images came to mind when I said a faculty name this provided me with many logo ideas. In addition I looked at existing logo designs in books wherein designers explored many different techniques, which I could use in my designs.

  11. ICT - system outputs

    A colour on screen may look different to the one printed. Laser printers are very bulky and expensive. Printers run out of ink, so a malfunction could occur in which the logo comes out in a different colour or tone to the one desired, thus changing the connotations of logo. Which output device would be better to use for this sub-system? The best out-put device for a logo, is the one already in use, a laser printer. Why? Because not only of a laser printers benefits over an inkjets, but a graphic logo cannot be recreated by e.g.

I have learnt about the different types of productions in industries e.g.

  15. Produce a new look for a website.

    I the started off by researching and designing a logo for the new look wow.com. I produced four prototypes of the logo and selected the best one that I felt had got the right look that I wanted. The final design included two people which I felt really stood out from the rest of the designs. The next task was to design the letterhead to update the old style into the new look. I used the documents that I collected at the beginning to give me ideas on how to design it. These where then used as templates for my design, my design for the letterhead was pretty simple as I felt that I didn't want to overcrowd the sheet.

  17. Dear Auntie Gladys and Uncle Jack,

    My friends and I, are at the top of the class for this subject but my biggest ambition is to become a barrister. Having a graphic design GCSE grade will not help me to become one so I think it could be a complete waste of time. Although on the other hand, if I fail at becoming my dream then I have something to fall back on such as a clothes designer or other interesting creative occupations. I am trying extremely hard to make my dream into reality.

  19. Production of Documents.

    How was it created I firstly put in my logo, and then added in the slogan later. I looked at this in a range of ways, including having the logo on the right, and also having the slogan below the logo, but my final decision was how it is seen above. I then put in my footer, which I filled green to make it look more catchy, I then decided what information to put in the footer. Seen as I didn't have a proper company and was unsure of what some information on the proper invoices was, I decided to simply put in the companies address, phone number and e-mail.

  22. I have been contacted by Ritchie Hulks who is a member of the Dover Athletic Supporters Trust board recently. He has asked me if it would be possible to design a monthly newsletter for the trust.

    One of the things that the trust promised was that all members would be informed as to what is happening at the club. I have been asked to design this newsletter because the people who run=n the DAST have very limited computer knowledge. They would supply me with all the information and what they want from me is a professional looking design, which all the members will read. They have told me that the newsletter will need to be 2 sides of A4 and that I can decided how it should be laid out.
